Aged Care

Respite

Supporting carers to relax and recharge

Taking a break from your carer’s role can help you restore your energy, reduce stress and keep your life in balance. Whether it’s a few hours a week to run errands, or time to take a holiday, our friendly Home Care Workers can provide help and support either at home or out and about while you enjoy a well-earned break.

Our aim is to ensure you feel relaxed and stress-free while taking a break from your carer’s role. Whether it’s assisting your loved one with daily tasks, taking them to appointments, or spending time with them in activities they enjoy, our experienced Home Care Workers will care for your loved one in a kind and considerate way, giving you peace of mind.

How it works

Getting to know you and your routine and needs is important to us. Your KinCare Customer Care Manager will spend time with your family to learn about their interests and understand the tasks and activities they need help with while you are away. We will work with you both to understand any specific needs and to find a suitable team member who you can really trust to care for them during your times away.

Depending on your individual needs, our friendly and experienced Home Care Workers can visit on a daily basis or occasionally, several times a week or overnight, ensuring your loved one is properly cared for and feels comfortable and safe whilst you are taking a break. We will tailor our services around what you both need.

Here are some of the ways we can help:

Short term support during carer illnesses, hospital stays, work commitments or emergencies

Extra help when there is an unexpected event

Regular weekly respite so you can run your errands

Evening or overnight stays with your loved one when you need assistance

You will be supported with:

Your own KinCare Customer Care Manager, who will get to know you and your needs

Assistance designed and tailored to suit your priorities and preferences

Fully trained KinCare team members, matched to your needs and personality
